Childrens Medical Counseling referral finder:
Children's Medical has developed a referral site to help us locate services in the Miami Valley area. New referral sites are added as Children can interview them and include their information.
Inpatient treatment options:
Please note that our current inpatient option for adolescents is Kettering Behavioral on Lamm road in Dayton. They are slated to close this summer, 2019 :(
Children's Medical Dayton is slated to open an inpatient adolescent unit (ages11-17) in mid July. They will be able to take cases with MH and also medical conditions like autism.
Dayton Childrens has also opened a Behavioral Health Center adjacent to the Children's ER. This will re -route the mental health ER visits away from the emergency room and to the this center so they can be better assessed leaving the ER for medical emergencies. They are open from 8am- midnight Monday-Friday, and 12 noon to midnight on Saturday and Sunday. If you are needing an assessment for mental health concerns outside this time, please go the the Children's ER.
Kettering Behavioral Hospital (closing in July 2019)
If your teen is expressing suicidal thoughts, KBH is a great option for immediate help. You can get in to KBH through any emergency room or by going to their location on Lamme Road in Dayton during walk-in hours. Your child will have an assessment and a counselor will advise your family of the next best step in taking care of your child's mental health. Options include inpatient treatment, where your child stays on-site or a few days or longer, partial hospitalization, where your child comes to their facility each week day for treatment and school, or out-patient counseling, where you have an appointment each week. (you may want to choose a local provider for out-patient counseling if you don't want to drive to Dayton each week.) Psychiatry services are also available.
